High expectations of new prime minister

The Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) announced that they are looking forward to working with Scott Morrison to regulate the provision of property investment advice, after it was formalised on Friday that the country's treasurer is set to become the new Prime Minister.

PIPA noted that it had already raised the matter, alongside their input on the importance of property investment, with Morrison during his tenure as the Federal Treasurer.

While this shows some progress as far as the sector is concerned, PIPA chairman Peter Koulizos said that the property investment profession as a whole hoped that a period of political stability would allow a more significant discussion on the matter.

Leadership verdict handed down: What it means for you

The Liberal Party's discombobulating machinations have spat out a result and a new leader, but what will it mean for you?

Following today's vote, current federal Treasurer Scott Morrison will be Australia's new Prime Minister, marking the end of Malcolm Turnbull's leadership. Australia has not seen a prime minister finish their term since 2007.

The decision follows a roller-coaster week in Canberra with key ministers, including assistant minister to the treasurer Michael Sukkar, resigning.

Despite Roy Morgan polling revealing Julie Bishop was the easily preferred prime minister as of this morning, Treasurer Scott Morrison has received the most support within the Liberal Party.

Dutton government and property: What should investors know?

The possibility of a government led by Peter Dutton is growing increasingly likely, so it's worth thinking about what a change in leader could mean for the Australian property market and property investors.

Plenty of discussion in the mainstream media has shown that there is a possibility of a change of leadership in the current government. Mr Dutton is being viewed as the most likely candidate to replace Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, resulting in a general state of confusion as to what a government led by Mr Dutton could mean for the country.

One aspect of this confusion is what it could mean for property investors. To clear this up, Nest Egg sister title Smart Property Investment spoke with experts to try to clear up any potential confusion for property investors.

According to Peter Koulizos, chairman of the Property Investment Professionals of Australia, Mr Dutton's stance on property investment is not fully known and, as such, investors need to wait and see what the effects of his leadership can have on property.

No capital city immune to housing market cycles

All of Australia's capital cities have been sensitive to housing market cycles over the past three decades, with price growth dominance shared across the country, according to new research.

According to a 30-year retrospective study by the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA), housing market growth was shared between capital cities, with no capital reporting consistent growth over the past three decades.

For example, the research found that between 1988 and 1992, Brisbane was the strongest-performing capital city with price growth of 99 per cent, while between 1993 and 1997, it was the second weakest-performing capital with value growth of 3.8 per cent.

Similarly, over the five years between 1993 and 1997, Darwin's housing market experienced the sharpest price growth, with value increases of 56.5 per cent, but it performed weakest in the following five years (1998–2002) with price growth of 5.1 per cent.

How does Australia's best performing capital city move?

If you want to see how property could move in the future, it's important to see how it moved in the past. New research takes a look at which capital city has been the best performing over the last 30 years and the reason behind their success.

Conducted by the Property Investment Professionals of Australia, the research revealed that no one capital city remained the top performer over that 30-year period, said its chairman Peter Koulizos.

"The facts prove Aussie investors and homebuyers over the past three decades have made solid returns across almost every capital city, depending on their ability to buy at the right time," he said.

Going as far back to the period of 1988 to 1992, Brisbane was the top performing capital city, with house prices nearly doubling at 99 per cent.
